Hermes designs luxurious floating island

  • Luxury retailer Hermes and Wally construct team up to design new superyacht
  • Innovative triangular wedge-shaped hull stays stable in rough waters
  • Boat features an 82 ft seawater swimming pool and 118 ft "beach" on deck
  • Green technologies, including solar, wind and rechargeable engines power ship

LONDON, England (CNN) -- French retailer Hermes and Monaco-based Wally Construct have teamed up to design a 125-foot wide, wedge-shaped yacht offering the ultimate life of luxury on the water.

The innovative new craft, which is yet to be built, has features including an 82 ft on-board salt water swimming pool, a 118 ft "beach" on the back deck and cutting-edge sustainable technologies.

The ship's central power system will recycle thermal energy and draw power from a diesel engine, a telescopic wind-turbine and 10,000 square feet of photovolactic solar panels, which ring the glass portion of the hull.

The unique triangular design of the hull will keep the yacht stable even amidst storms and high waves. In full swell the hull barely moves.

Inside, a 2,200 square foot master-suite decorated by Hermes occupies the entire 3rd floor and boasts its own private deck. On the second floor five guest suites and a recreational lounge offer luxurious accommodation for 12 people. The lower floor holds common space including a spa, dinning room and cinema.

Now all Hermes and Wally need is a buyer, so they can build it.
